DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AA22 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Inadmissibility and Deportability on Public Charge Grounds 
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (the Department, or DHS) is amending its regulations governing determinations of whether an alien is inadmissible to the United States, ineligible to adjust status to lawful permanent resident, or has become deportable on public charge grounds. This rule is intended to alleviate confusion over the meaning of the term "public charge" in immigration law, reduce negative consequences generated by this confusion, and provide aliens with better guidance as to the types of public benefits that will and will not be considered in public charge determinations. This interim rule also addresses the public comments on the legacy Immigration and Naturalization Service proposed public charge rule published on May 26, 1999, at 64 FR 28676.
